    For those with Dawn Redwood experience...

    I've found a couple redwoods at the box, and they have relatively large trunks. Downside is they are nor entirely straight (nature isn't perfect), but they've also seen some roughing up I think. Lower leaves are decent, but nearly missing on one side, top looks pretty bare, but doubtful tree is...

    Little Bug that I can’t identify

    Anyone know what this is? Found them all on a dying juniper in my garden about two weeks ago and sprayed some neem oil. Then two days ago a potted up a Dawn redwood sapling that I just got and when I went out today I saw the same bugs so I snapped a pic real quick. Are they pests or are they...

    Dawn Redwood grove

    Picked up this Dawn Redwood forest and pot at our club auction last fall. The pot is really huge (about 25-26 inches across) and unique and that's mainly what I was bidding on - it was made by an older member of the club who can't really do pottery anymore and I want to own a few pieces of his...

    Dawn Redwood Growth

    I just got some Dawn redwood seeds for next year. I am wondering what everyone’s ideas are for best germination practices? Also does anyone have a progression from seed - seedling - tree? I can’t seem to find good timelines of them. I’m wondering how many years it’ll take to get a decent...

    Hi all, I'm quite new to this hobby and would like any advice or input anybody is willing to give me. In fact, as of now, I haven't styled, nor do I yet plan to style, any trees.

    Care of Dawn Redwood Bonsai on summer. Help please.

    Greetings. I recently acquired a forest of 5 Dawn Redwood Bonsai which arrived to my home full of life as you can see in the first picture. I decided to put it outside the window and water it once per day. I live in an island in Spain with a humidity of 50-70% and temperatures between 30 and 34...

    Dawn Redwood Rooting?

    Hello everyone! This is my first post on Bonsai Nut, but I have around 30 bonsai and have been working with them for approximately five years. I recently went on vacation for six days, and to keep my plants alive, I placed them in a circle with two sprinklers in the middle. All my bonsai are in...

    Thickening dawn redwood trunk ... pruning = bad?

    Hi - Bonsai newbie here. I got a dawn redwood in May this year and it appears to be growing well. Trunk is around an inch in diameter at its base, and so far I've just been focused on trying to keep it healthy and thickening the trunk. Eventually I'll look to do a trunk chop and work on...

    Dawn Redwood foliage problem.

    Hi all! Just a quick question. As you can see from the photos some of the foliage on my dawn redwood is turning reddish brown. :( Could it be too much fertilizer? I hope that it’s not something worse. I fed it with an 18-4-10 slow release fert in teabags for about a month and a half, and then...

    Recently purchased little (2 foot) Dawn Redwood in zone 6a. Still in nursey pot. I left town for a few days and had watering set up, but the forecast changed and now the next few nights are supposed to get down to 28-30 degree F. There are a lot of buds on the tree currently. If I was home, I...

    Hey all! I hope this is the right forum for this thread, if I need to post to a different one no worries. Looking for advice on how to keep my last three year-old Dawn Redwood seedlings alive.

    New Trees

    Hi Everyone, I just acquired some new trees and figured I’d share them with the group. @cbroad mentioned that Meehans Miniatures in Maryland was in my area so I went with them and ordered a Dawn Redwood, Trident Maple, and a Bald Cypress. Once I am able to more freely travel I plan on going...

    Tree Identification

    Hi this is the first tree I have purchased. It was sold to me as a Dawn Redwood but I’m not so sure. First off, the leaves are still green. I assume a dawn redwood would at least have its fall colors by now if not have already dropped its leaves. Secondly, the tree has two types of foliage...
